I concur with Bill Roach that not all electronic records are created
Tiff and PDF documents are much more likely to be able to be migrated (and
less expensively) than proprietary electronic records. And while I am
excited about the potential aid to Archives that the new PDF-A standard that
AIIM is involved in developing as an international document offers, risks
and costs (that Archives frequently can't absorb) are still associated with
any non-human readable record.
